This article analyses one of the most notorious TV trend in the last years –the zombie–, and how its evolution is related to the usual dynamics that features every artistic genre, but also to the “affective turn” that contemporary society is experiencing. In order to analyse this cultural phenomena, firstly we will explore the metaphorical condition that traditionally has been associated with zombie narratives since George A. Romero reinvention. Next, we will study –by taking a close look to some examples– the causes for the ongoing humanization the living dead have gone through both in cinema and television. Lastly, we will scrutinize three recent TV Shows dealing with the zombie myth from stylistic, thematic and ideological innovative perspectives: In the Flesh (BBC, 2013-14), Les Revenants (Canal Plus Francia, 2012-15) and iZombie (CW, 2015-).
